You may not realize it when you first step onboard the Epic 23V. That’s understandable. You can only appreciate the ease of all-foam flooring and marine-grade vinyl seats when it’s cleaning time, and all it takes is hosing it out to keep it looking like new.
It might not even dawn on you while you’re doing your first set. Even though you’re riding on the biggest wakes you’ve ever seen, shaped perfectly by the integrated wake shape plate, it’s hard to comprehend there’s room for 4,000 lbs. of ballast considering all the storage space.
After you’ve nailed all your tricks and you’re climbing back onto the infused swim step, chances are you’ll be preoccupied with your favorite song cranking out of the transom audio.
Replaying your session in your mind, the light bulb still might not go off. After all, industry-firsts like using resin infusion to build a hull with DROP Zone Wake-Enhancing Technology are rather inconspicuous.
With the Mercruiser 350 Scorpion 330 HP Engine with the optional GPS Smart Tow & Launch Control powering your party to the dock, you’ll be towing with as much brainpower as horsepower.
Having already drained the ballast tanks in less than 90 seconds, your V-6 truck doesn’t strain for an instant as you pull the 3900 lb. dry weight out of the water. When you’re securing the 23V to the back of the trailer, and the dual-rudder vector steering is staring you in the
face, you might be too tired to make the connection that it’s another Epic Wakeboat industry first, and that’s what makes the maneuverability so simple.
As the day’s highlight reel runs through your head one more time, and you’re exhausted but anxious to get back out there, you think about how all you really had to think about was having fun.
And then it hits you. The Epic 23V really is the world’s first wakeboat.
